The Stomp The Stigma initiative was founded in 2017 by CURE (Center for Universal Resiliency and Empathy), a 501(c)(3) non-profit company, to examine and promote mental health awareness. CURE promotes just 2 things:
- Resiliency – increased understanding and management of personal trauma (stress, anxiety, delusion, etc.), and
- Empathy – increased recognition that:
a) Everyone experiences trauma during their lifetime to different degrees and with different coping mechanism effectiveness; and
b) The belief that all humans were created as high-performance beings. Some realize their gifts early, some late, and some not at all. But all deserve respect and encouragement while on their personal path to discovery.
